Posting Unsubstantiated Rumours on this Website is Strictly Forbidden
  • IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ BEFORE POSTING

    Demonland has made the difficult decision to not permit this platform to be used to discuss & debate the off-field issues relating to the Melbourne Football Club including matters currently being litigated between the Club & former Board members, board elections, the culture at the club & the personal issues & allegations against some of our players & officials ...

    We do not take these issues & this decision lightly & of course we believe that these serious matters affecting the club we love & are so passionate about are worthy of discussion & debate & I wish we could provide a place where these matters can be discussed in a civil & respectful manner.

    However these discussions unfortunately invariably devolve into areas that may be defamatory, libelous, spread unsubstantiated rumours & can effect the mental health of those involved. Even discussion & debate of known facts or media reports can lead to finger pointing, blame & personal attacks.

    The repercussion is that these discussions can open this website, it’s owners & it’s users to legal action & may result in this website being forced to shutdown.

    Our moderating team are all volunteers & cannot moderate the forum 24/7 & as a consequence problematic content that contravenes our rules & standards may go unnoticed for some time before it can be removed.

    We reserve the right to delete posts that offend against our above policy & indeed, to ban posters who are repeat offenders or who breach our code of conduct.

    WE HAVE BUILT A FANTASTIC ONLINE COMMUNITY AT DEMONLAND OVER THE PAST 23 YEARS & WE WOULD LIKE TO CONTINUE TO BE ABLE TO DISCUSS THE CLUB WE LOVE & ARE SO PASSIONATE ABOUT.

    Thank you for your continued support & understanding. Go Dees.

So as soon as another club shows interest in one of our players who is showing abit of form we should trade 'em.
Got it 👌

All these media parasites who think they're club list managers.
Fork 'em all.

I don’t want to lose Petty and I really don’t like to agree with Cornes but I think he’s right here. If Harrison has indicated that he will sign a new contract here then we should hold onto him. If not then it might be wise to trade him now when we can get as much as we can for him.

We can't trade Petty without securing a key forward replacement  to replace him from Round 1 2024.  We're in the premiership window and we need to win games now. That is more important than selling Petty high. And the deal offered by Crows does not come close to selling Petty high.

What evidence do you have that Petty isn’t happy to stay and play for Melbourne? 
If he doesn’t come out and ask for a trade then he’s clearly very comfortable and committed to stay.

I didn't say Petty wasn't happy at Melbourne. Please read my comment again, but read the entire thing this time.

I love Petty to bits, i want him to stay as do all us Demons, but I reckon Petty knows deep down he's one injury away from screwing his future up here.

Was the deal 5 years, 1m the first year then 800k the next four?

Will this offer be there for him in 1-2 years time? I don't reckon it will be. He's stated he wants to come back to Adelaide.

Im looking at this from a different lens here, I believe his Partner is from Adelaide? also if they want to start a family in the next 3-4 years his partners parents are going to be helping out part of the time would he get that help in Melbourne with no family? No way.

He is very injury prone, he was injured twice this year playing as a Forward, a significant history with injuries.

If he gets injured again his value will significantly drop from a draft point of view, if he's going to leave next year we won't see this deal again

If this offer from the Crows is Thilthorpe or Fogarty, Pick 10 and McAdam for Petty if it eventuates take it and run i say.

I'd even squeeze them for pick 14 aswell and throw in Neal Bullen or Chandler.

 

Has he?

Not publicly, but he doesn't have too, many players have been traded without even requesting a trade publicly. See Grundy and Steven May.

The fact that Goodwin has had to sit down with him and convince him to stay, suggests that he has had serious consideration of going home as well as Adelaide's offer.

There's enough smoke there.

he would be crazy not to consider the move with that sort of money being thrown at him

at the same time...he's re-committed himself to the club that he has a further two years under contract with

ultimately after two more premierhips and two colemans he's going to be well-rewarded in the years to come regardless

Agreed, but the post I responded to made it sound like Petty wanted to go back to Adelaide. The only public information we have is that Goodwin spoke to him and he's happy to stay. We've also had posts on this thread claiming he has no desire to leave and is happy at Melbourne. There's no doubt he listened to Adelaide's huge offer, but that's it at this stage.

Adelaide seem to have done a bit of work with Petty, problem for them is they still need to satisfy us 

Keep him as a required player like numerous clubs have done before. If he still wants out in two years as an RFA, we'll likely still get a mid to late first round pick as compensation. Which is currently the best Adelaide are offering with McAdam thrown in.

Adelaide are yet to make it an appealing proposition for us. It's like North offering 15, 17, 18 and future end of first (19+) to West Coast. Doesn't go anywhere near satisfying the asset that he is.

If Thilthorpe or Fogerty become part of the equation then we might listen. But I just can't see them offering either player.

Does anyone expect him to not even listen? Of course you need to hear what they have to say. 

I'm sure it captured his heart and mind. 

Known as a really genuine guy, he has told the coach and his team mates he's staying.

exactly.  of course he'd listen.  who wouldn't be excited by someone promising them to be an instant millionaire next year, even if it grossly overvalued him.

there wouldn't be a demonlander who, if someone offered them to double their salary, wouldn't listen and give it serious consideration. 

he's never given any indication of a great desire "to return home"

and finally, the crows need to offer mfc something that reflects the value of what they have offered harry

How could we? Means we'd have to play one of T Mac or BBB every week

Only if we landed Darling or someone half decent via a separate trade.

The Zorko situation was more than enough to convince me that this bloke is a special enough person and player that we should make him stay at least for next year. He is not just a piece of cattle and Adelaide must not think much of really any of their players if our Team is totally committed to top four next year and their end just wants to pick up a player that will, in my book upset the balance of their forward structure and their backline.

    SCRUTINY & RESILIENCE by Whispering Jack

    If the week when preseason training melds into scratch matches with other clubs, is the first marker for the beginning of a new season, then this has certainly been a torrid opener for the Melbourne Football Club in its campaign to remain a leading AFL premiership contender in 2024. The Demons were already under enormous scrutiny from the media and football’s fan base (including their own) after consecutive straight-sets finals exits, with Clayton Oliver’s well documented woes, the Joel Smi
